Outdoor Furniture

Röshults Collection

It’s full-on summertime, so don’t forget to put the Röshults collection on your ‘what-to-buy-if-I-win-the-lottery’ list. They definitely have one of the best outdoor collections I’ve ever seen. The grills. The kitchen sink. The garden trolley. All amazing. However if you’re not loaded, don’t get too attached; a whole set could set you back 10 grand easy. The stand out favorites are below; see website for the whole collection and more details.

Sawyer Chair

Update: Now on sale for $199 (org.$249). Pretty reasonable price. Plus, it’s an excellent time to get your summer seating sorted.

CB2 is at it again with fantastic outdoor furniture. This chair is a no brainer for those of you that like a tad bit of traditional thrown in with your modern day sensibilities. It’s a thoroughly updated adirondack chair with the same low lounge look, yet with a modernized treatment to its angles and joints. Plus, it fits a smaller budget just fine.

Materials: Solid FSC-certified eucalyptus wood.

Marco Outdoor Poufs

A pouf made for outdoors? Yes, please. It’s weather-proof, so let the elements have their way (within reason) with this footrest. It could also double as an extra seating option when you have a few extra people over.

Cord Lounge Chair

You’ve seen the various string chairs (the Acapulco Chair, for instance), but check out this lounge chair from Ilan Dei Studio. Doesn’t it look ‘designer-y’, and by that I mean, pretty expensive? Compared to the woven Tropicalia Lounge Chair by Patricia Urquiola for $4,410, it sure seems like a good price at $799.

Acapulco Chair

Hmm, what do we have here? If you have an extraordinary memory, you might just remember a tiny note I made regarding the price of an Acapulco-ish Egg Chair back in 2009. Often these chairs are priced around the $400 – $500 mark, which didn’t make much sense to me as I’ve seen them on porches of very humble abodes in Mexico and Costa Rica. Enter in MoMA Store, who now carries the Acapulco Chair for a mere $195. Hmm. The investigation continues below.

Dania Folding Beach Chair

Warmer weather means park visits and beach trips, both of which are all the better with comfortable seating.

It’s a classic choice, made of solid teak with “unprecedented craftsmanship.”

Outdoor Eames® Aluminum Group Lounge Chair

How do you feel about Eames furniture outdoors? While it seems like an odd idea, it turns out that the Aluminum Group was promoted as the “leisure group” or “indoor-outdoor group” in the late 1950s, but then was changed to be exclusively indoors. Now Herman Miller has restored the collection to its original intent, with powder-coated frames and outdoor friendly fabrics to withstand the weather.

Panamericana Chair

This chair probably isn’t new to your eyes, as there are several versions floating all around this side of the world. Industry Of All Nations has combined the many versions into one “hybrid conclusion” and called it the Panamericana chair, named after the Panamericana road, of course. Made from teak wood, the chair can be used indoors or out with low maintenance, and they fold for easy transport or storage.

Planktable by Piet Hein Eek

Because this table is made from scrapwood, each is one-of-a-kind. There’s also a non-scrapwood teak version (pictured below), but you’d do well to consider the more interesting scrap version, as Mr. Eek is known for that sort of thing (remember the Scrapwood Wallpaper?).

If you’re not familiar with his work, check out the full collection on his website: Piet Hein Eek.

Twist Side Tables

While these tables do seem quite small (10″Wx14″Dx14″H), they are currently on sale for $39.95 for a set of 2. Put four tables together for a coffee table, or keep them separate for smaller drink tables and such. They’d be pretty versatile for any outdoor space and you could buy several without breaking the bank.

Suitable for indoor/outdoor use.

Tie-1-on Chair

Oh, beanbags. Just when you think you’re sick of them, this outdoor version makes you think twice. Nylon web strapping on the sides means you can tie chairs together for a loveseat or sofa, or even a chaise if you add the ottoman. Now, the red isn’t for everyone, of course, but it is relatively inexpensive, and for (modern-ish) outdoor seating options that’s few and far between.
